Thread: Moenia = Depeche Mode ?

  1. #1


    Agree? Yes No

    Cool Moenia = Depeche Mode ?

    Moenia has long been called the Mexican Depeche Mode but there is a specific song that you can listen to and figure out where it came from even if you don't know spanish.

    "YA NO ES ASI" track 9 off of the Adicion+ CD by Moenia is the
    same as "BUT NOT TONIGHT" by Depeche Mode. The words have been translated a little differently so they work better in spanish but the same meaning is acheived with the song.

    Has anyone else noticed this? Anyone seen any other DM songs that have been used this way? Not covered but redone in another language as the band's own song.

    I am not bashing Moenia at all. I think it is great that they would do this (even though I don't see any credits to Martin Gore on the cd information) and there are many songs in spanish that I think would make great songs in english.

    Let me know what you think of Moenia's version and if you find any others like this. I know of two others bands in english that have used full lines from a DM song in their own song.

    I agree, and even though I've been a Moenia fan since the mid-90's, I have to admit they did rip off DM on that song...It's a great song though, but some credit in the liner notes would suffice I think...Who knows, maybe they got permission from Mart. to use the lyrics albeit changed up for a Spanish version...

    Then again, maybe DM has never heard of Moenia-he he he...If Mart find sout he'll be pissed-he he he

    All in all, a lot od Spanish bands have done it in the past (not always with DM), but it happens I guess...It is a really good song though, and Adicion is my favorite Moenia album...

    Good point, maybe I just cost Moenia a whole bunch in royalties! Not likely :-)

    I have never heard of that Moenia but the way it sounds I don't like them, first because I hate spanish, second they are crap because they're stealing DM's songs.
    I think that none band should copy any other band, that's so patetic.
    Covers are good but not stealing of songs and just rewriting them on some other language

    I havenīt heard this band, but I wouldnīt say that they are crap just because they have taken someone elseīs song.
    I mean, they can still do the song in a good way.

    It doesn't matter if song is good or not, it's not original it's stolen!

    ELECTROM..Hummmm! So you hate my language uuuupss! what a big disappoinment. what a shame Jaaaa!!!

    Spanish is just one of the most sofisticated and Romantic languages in the world,

    Moenia, so you haven't heard this band. too bad! they're really good, these guys are real DM fans, and they also produce some great music, I believe if they ever translated this song to Spanish
    their only inttention was paying some kind of tribute to their idols DM, but heyyy! I respect your humble opinion my friend.

    But just for the record, These mexican guys are not crap at all
    right now they have probably more fans than any other synthpop Eropean band around, so go and figure??????

    Anyways God bless you..

    and yes Adiccion is their finest album so far ,very Dm...
    and the translation of that song is perfect....

    Regards

    mmmmm OK I have to admit that the moenia Addicion sounds kinda like the DM Ultra but listen to their 3rd album "le modulor" they did a pretty good job including new sounds and etc........ but please moenia is not copying DM Perhaps all synth bands!!! sounds Like DM bands like Perfidious Words, De/vision etc.... I do not want to mention any other band but IS NOT ONLY "MOENIA"

    I personnally wouldn't mind hearing a good version of a Depeche Mode song in Croation or Hrvatski, as long it was a good version. I would hope we are culturally diversified and mature enough here at EG not to distain someone or some group for the language they speak.

    Anyone consider that maybe Moenia recieved permission from Depeche Mode to do the song in spanish?

    Does anyone know?

    Maybe Moenia is a good band though I mean it's very possible.
    Myself and my band members are also HUGE dm fans but we don't play pure electro music.
    I don't like when some bands copy their idols, those band look like they're not creative. In most cases they aren't!
    It would be a disaster to translate some DM or any other song on Croatian. Language is too complicated.

    As for Spanish, I don't like Spanish, Italian, French... Real languages are English and German! My opinion!

    Those first languages are too soft, I like harsh languages. Though I can stand any sort of music, songs that aren't on English!

    PEACE ALL OF YOU!

    I wrote moenia and confronted them about it
    It is kind of a dedicaion they say to DM
    I dont know how true that is but since I know spanish
    i hear some similarites but its too different to be a rip off
    IMO

    "Real" languages like English, German, Russian? The languages that are actually some of the most difficult ot learn because they dont follow their own rules half the time.

    The "not real" languages you are referring to are all Romance languages. They are fairly similar, and if a person can speak Italian or Spanish then they can get a pretty good understanding of what is going on in the other language.

    Hehehe.

    Anyhow, I'm sure if Moenia was blatantly ripping of DM something would have been done already. Moenia is probably one of the most popular spanish synth bands around, since they're the only one I've ever heard of...

    I like more hard languages. It's a chalenge to learn them.
    I learn Latine it's a dead language but Roman languages are based on it so I can easily learn Spanish or Italian if I want.
    However i don't want to, not right now.

    Cool! You got Moenia to write you back. I wrote them many times when their new website was being developed, moenia.org, and they never wrote me back. They were probably too buy getting Le Modular out. I would love for them to come to Phoenix. I here they do a good show.

    I think they got permision from Martin Gore to record this song but not 100% sure I saw in MTV like 4 years ago that moenia were recording "Adiccion" in the same Studio were DM was recording the first demos For the "Exciter" CD so you never know!!! but I promise I will try to find out with DJ 's that knows moenia well.
